The Atlanta Falcons were totally awful for three quarters before waking up in the 4th and making a game of it. Joey Harrington started the game and he did not play well as he completed 17 of 34 passes for 184 yards with a interception. He was replaced by Chris Redman who led the Falcons to a comeback before they faded. He completed 16 of 24 passes for 172 yards with 2 TD passes and 1 interception. Warrick Dunn had a rough time finding any running room against the Rams as he carried the ball 10 times for 17 yards (1.7 ypc). Jerious Norwood outplayed Dunn once again as he carried the football 8 times for 94 yards (11.8 ypc) and he also caught 3 passes for 21 yards (7.0 avg). Roddy White had a monster game as he caught 10 passes for 146 yards (14.6 avg) with a TD grab. Alge Crumpler (7 rec, 65 yards) and Michael Jenkins (5 rec, 48 yards, TD) also pitched in on the passing game for the Falcons.
